"The era of digital payments is upon us" Paypal's president says yesterday
Apple Pay, which will allow people to pay for everyday goods with their smartphone, already has the technology industry scrambling to profit from a future in which apps could regularly replace cash, checks and credit cards. If doubts remained about the far-reaching implications of Apple's entry into the market, they were almost surely cast aside on Tuesday. In a surprise announcement, the e-commerce giant eBay said it would spin off PayPal, long the dominant digital payment service — a move meant to make PayPal more nimble in a fast-changing market. It remains far from certain that Apple Pay, which uses the fingerprint reader on recent iPhones to confirm identities, will become a hit. But the swift reaction by companies in the three weeks since Apple Pay was unveiled makes clear that how we normally pay for goods and services is ripe for transformation. (Source nytimes.com)

Colorado High Court to Decide If Employers Must Allow Marijuana Use
The Colorado Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday in a lawsuit brought by a medicinal-marijuana user who was fired in 2010 after failing a company drug test. Mr. Coats, who sued the company in 2011, alleged that Dish Network violated a Colorado law that prohibits an employer from firing an employee for "engaging in any lawful activity off the premises of the employer during nonworking hours." Mr. Coats's case has garnered close attention, as more states consider laws permitting marijuana use. Medical pot is legal in 22 other states and the District of Columbia. Washington is the only other state to have approved it for recreational use. Courts in California, Oregon and Washington have held that employers can fire employees for medical marijuana use.

PWC/CSO Survey - reveals detected breaches and associated costs are up. Budgets? Not so much  The 12th annual Global State of Information Security Survey 2015, conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers and CSO, some of the results were to be expected, while others are quite surprising. For instance, if all of these attacks and high profile vulnerabilities have a bright side, it's that the board of directors at large companies continue to increase the amount of attention they pay to IT security. No surprise there. What is a surprise however is that IT security spending is down broadly by 4% year over year. (Source csoonline.com)

FBI opens malware tool to public as part of radical crowdsourcing plan - malwareinvestigator.gov initiative  A way for the FBI to make the lives of external US investigators easier but the pay-back for the FBI is probably just as important - it gets to see more malware than it might otherwise do. Somewhere along the line the Bureau realized that simply creating a facility for fellow law enforcement departments was no longer going to be enough to get rapid intelligence on malware. The new system will be accessible by anyone, including enterprises, security researchers and academics alike. This is crowdsourcing by any other name. Retailers will be able to submit malware instantly. (Source csoonline.com)

California becomes first state to ban single-use plastic bags
California Governor Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation for the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags at supermarkets, drug stores and select other retail outlets. The new law will be phased in, and goes into effect for large grocery stores, including Walmart and Target, and pharmacies beginning July 1, 2015. It will extend to convenience stores and liquor stores July 1, 2016. The law does not apply to bags used for fruits, vegetables or meats, or to shopping bags used at other retailers. Several cities, including San Francisco, and municipalities already have similar laws on the books. Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey are all considering imposing a tax on plastic bags that customers would have to pay, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

New Director of Loss Prevention job open at Performance Food Group

American Apparel Said to Be Open to Keeping fired CEO & founder Dov Charney
Charney was removed as CEO on June 18 by the board, which accused him of violating the sexual-harassment policy and misusing corporate funds.

The Fed Wants To Clean Up Token Confusion
The Federal Reserve Banks of Boston and Atlanta applaud the many efforts to standardize payment tokenization, except the part that there are in fact so many such efforts. The potential for confusion and, much worse, standards conflicts undermining token efforts—especially in mobile—is a great concern of the Fed. "There are several obstacles to developing a common set of standards for tokenization for the payments industry. First, different tokenization models are being developed (e.g., EMVCo, TCH, card networks, PCI SSC, and ASC X9)," said a joint report issued by the two Fed groups. The groups also had more specific concerns. For example: "Global tokenization standards should address front-end fraud, but none of the current models do," it said, before adding that EMVCo at least develops assurance scores and supports the brands' vetting of token requestors. Another serious concern is how retailers will work with tokens, given how extensive—and different—the various infrastructure change needs are. (Source pymnts.com)

Non-Cash Transactions On The Rise Globally
Non-cash payments ticked up 10 percent in 2013 to 366 billion transactions, pulled along by intense growth in developing markets. According to RBS data, nearly a quarter of all global non-cash transaction growth-that's about 93 billion transactions-happened in those developing markets. China remains less developed than expected for non-cash payments, but it's growth rate and population mean it could outstrip the U.S. and Europe within the next five years. (Source pymnts.com)

The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has arrested two Tampa men who drove to Venice to use cloned credit cards at area Publix stores.

Interesting how the social dynamics of a small industry mirror, somewhat, the same social dynamics of a family, with the holidays and conferences almost being one in the same, where we're excited to visit with old friends and colleagues, yet cautious about the battle lines business and careers at times necessitate or cause. At the end of the day, it's all about doing what's right for the industry, adding value, helping people and continuing to help evolve the industry. And while each executive has their individual agendas, it's important to remember that we are all part of one industry and we all share one goal - to guide, nurture and evolve it.

Just a Thought,
